Jim Henson’s Dinosaur Train Live

Any self-respecting paleontologist or freighthopper would tell you that dinosaurs didn’t ride trains. But that didn’t stop the Jim Henson Company from combining the two for their hit animated series, Dinosaur Train, which teaches kids about both natural history and technology. Now, the beloved characters come to life in the stage show Buddy’s Big Adventure.

Raised by a family of pteranodons, youngster Buddy the T-Rex worries about what will happen when he grows too big for their nest. So the whole clan hops on the titular choo-choo to find out, traveling across the Mesozoic era for the advice of Buddy’s good friend, the Elvis-like King Cryolophosaurus. However, when the pompadoured thunder lizard goes missing, the gang must track him down—not only for his knowledge, but so he can perform at a concert scheduled for that night.

The TV show’s enchanting world is brought from the small screen to the larger-than-life stage through a variety of special effects, from projections of prehistoric vistas to full-body costumes that also make use of the Henson team’s innovative puppetry. But perhaps the most thrilling spectacle of all, other than watching an usher try to keep a triceratops out of the aisles, is a full-sized replica of the Dinosaur Train.
